Champagne Lanson Le Rosé Brut Rosé NV

Champagne, FranceLanson has been making this friendly rosé since the 1950s. The current incarnation blends 53% pinot noir, 32% chardonnay, and 15% pinot meunier, with a 7% splash of still pinot noir and pinot meunier for colour. As per house style, no malolactic fermentation is employed in the primary ferment. There are 35% reserve wines in the mix, and the blend comes from 100 different crus, 50% of which are GC and 1er. Based on 2016, my bottle was disgorged in May 2022 with eight g/L. Bright and straight, as per the house style, carrying meringue, light toast, and bright cherry across a lightly creamy/doughy base, subtly seasoned with stony spice. A welcoming, smart choice for rosé.Tasted: 02 February 2023Tasted by: Prices:
